Power....think about that word. What images come to mind when you think of that word? I think of bar bells, I think of the ocean, I think of the forces of nature and I think of working out. There are many things in this world that represent power. There are many things in this world that we give our power to. I am not going to say it takes our power because that means that we are helpless, but we give our power away all the time. We have a choice everyday to be powerFUL or powerLESS. Remember, we are the creators of our own reality so we can be full of power in every choice we make or we can choose less than that. Now, tell me, why would you choose less when you can choose more? Over the years, I was a yo yo dieter, I would lose then gain then lose then gain more until eventually my health really began to suffer as well as my self esteem and my entire life. I was tired all of the time, I went to Six Flags with my family and I was in severe pain walking around the park and was not able to ride a lot of rides, I had to start using a CPAP in order to sleep, I had high blood pressure, I was depressed, the list could go on and on. But one day I made a choice. I made a choice to change my life. I made a choice to take my power back. I made a choice to take the word "can't" out of my vocabulary. I can do ANYTHING I want and "CAN'T" is a choice I will not choose. I am on a path that is healthier and have released myself from guilt and pain of the past and made the choice to love myself and love others deeply. I will not put myself back in chains and that is a definate choice I can live with. I can live with running around with my daughter, playing in the pool for hours with her, taking she and my dog for fun walks, enjoying Six Flags with my family and just living a more powerFUL life!! So, I hope that you will start making little choices everyday to take your own power back. All it takes is small choices to start. Live life and be POWERFUL my friends!
